How will I be taught?
Each week there will be a practical session to produce a pre-stated style of flower arrangement during which assistance will be provided by the tutor on a 1:1 basis as required. The tutor will demonstrate the practical session in advance. Other aspects relating to the subject will also be covered.
After the practical work is completed there will be feedback by group discussion
What do I need to bring with me?
Students will need to provide their own plant material i.e. flowers and foliage, containers, mechanics, floral foam and accessories that are sometimes needed for the design each week. Good scissors and secateurs, a notebook and pen and a table covering are required together with a camera for recording work each week
For the first lesson please bring a selection of flowers and foliage with Spring in mind together with a basket of your choice, with or without a handle. If your basket is not watertight you will need a container which fits comfortably into it. Lined baskets should be checked before use as they have a tendency to develop small holes which let the water out and can damage your furniture!
Floral foam and basic mechanics are available to purchase in class.
